Covid-19 is a catalyst for change for numerous risks. To flatten the curve, businesses and homes are moving online at an accelerated rate; the global economy must now reassess and reimagine modes of consumption, supply, interaction, productivity and, last but not least - security.
Countering cyber threats successfully requires a focus on human behaviour as well as technology enhancement. This networking webinar brings together two academic experts to look at both digital security by design and human factors, and will review key areas of concern for cyber risk altered by Covid-19 and their long term effects.
The event will be run as Zoom Meeting, with Q&A and breakout rooms, without recording. Attendance is free. Please register your interest on Zoom; this will help us with the running of this virtual event.
